The vitamin C mask that Victoria Beckham swears by

After a full-on week, it’s the product the jet-setting designer and mother-of-four reaches for
It hasn’t escaped our notice how glowy Victoria Beckham’s skin has been looking as of late. From the Royal Wedding to Elton John’s charity Argento Ball this weekend, she’s looked impeccably fresh-faced. Her secret? The designer and mother-of-four took to her Instagram to share the skin pick-me-up she reaches for when her schedule’s especially jam-packed - Lancer Radiance Awakening Mask Intense.
Captioning a shot of the bright pink tube, she wrote: ‘After a full on week my skin needs an intense mask!’ - we know the feeling and are always on the hunt for products that deliver. What is it about this particular treatment though that makes it worthy of the VB seal of approval? From a look at its key ingredients, it appears to be its blend of dermatologist-approved skin brighteners such as 5% stabilised vitamin C (a potent antioxidant) and skin barrier-boosting niacinamide (aka vitamin B3) which together work to improve sallowness, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
It’s even so bold to claim to provide improvements to clarity, tone and eveness after the first application. It can be worn for five to 10 minutes or overnight once or twice a week if you’re in need of a more intense treatment.
A glowing complexion doesn’t come cheap though. At £118 a pop, in order to get skin like VB, you’ll probably need a bank balance like hers too. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, check out our edit of the best vitamin C serums instead which features the likes of The Ordinary and Kiehl’s. We’ll also be stocking up on another of Victoria’s favourite products too while we save up, Weleda Skin Food, which comes in at a much more purse-friendly £12.50, and is described by Victoria as her ‘body secret’ for keeping dry skin at bay and helping her self-tan last longer too. We’re sold.
